In Silico Biology, a peer-reviewed online journal, attempts to bridge the gap between experimental scientists and computational biologists by focusing on biologically significant computational methods and results. A print version is also available. [Subscribe via Web site or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org]
Computational Methods in Molecular Biology, edited by Steven Salzberg (The Institute for Genomic Research), David Searls (SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals), and Simon Kasif (University of Illinois at Chicago), was published by Elsevier Science in 1998. Leading researchers from the computational biology community are included among the authors.
Biologists who rely on computers are the primary audience, with a secondary audience of computer scientists who are developing techniques with biology applications. A list of Web resources in the book will be kept updated on the JHU Website. 398 pp., hardbound. [Orders: Web, search on "Salzberg"; 888/437-4636 or 212/633-3730; email@example.com]
Bioinformatics: A Practical Guide to the Analysis of Genes and Proteins is intended to help the molecular biologist design and implement a successful sequence-analysis strategy using the overwhelming array of tools available, including Internet resources. Edited by Andreas D. Baxevanis (NIH NHGRI) and B.F. Francis Ouellette (then at NIH National Center for Biotechnology Information), the book is a collection of chapters on relevant topics from 16 contributors. Paperback, 362 pp. 1998.

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
